If You Could Look Straight Through Me

If you could look straight through me, and look into my soul
You'd see a heart that once held love ripped to shreds and torn apart
You'd see a heart that once was strong, so hard it's turned to stone
If you could see straight through me, and see inside my head
You'd find all the good memories in ashes, charred and dead
Could there be a remedy, is there any cure
to overcome the hurt and hate we've put each other through
To think we'll never love again, not a love that's true
It all seems such a waste now, so evil and so cruel
It's as if love has taken us and turned us into fools
We did not treat it with respect, we've broken all the rules
We had the best intentions but maybe not the tools
If you could look straight through me, looked deep into my eyes
You'd see the pain and sadness
You'd see a fire that's died
A spark can so suddenly be turned into a flame
But then just as suddenly, be put out again

    ..."If I Were To Gaze Through These Eyes, My Dear Sweeet Beautiful Juliette * My Vision Would Be Blurry, Impaired, Tainted & Not Far Could They See ... Yet, If In Faithful Spirit I Did Gaze, Then, I Would Not Find The Pain, Rather, The Splendour Beyound These Walls *.* 'Kisses & Hugs ... Luv,'" Tristen :)
